It is time to add support for this file format.
Although I cannot guarantee that 3MF will be supported going forward, I can definitely pass this feedback along to the appropriate channels. Thank you for taking the time to share your request!
Many say that STL is already dead and 3MF is the future in 3D printing. So formlabs will -have to- include it sooner or later
Thanks for sharing your feedback, I have officially submitted a feature request to our Software team. Again, I cannot guarantee any timelines but hope we can add functionality in the near future.
I’ve been hearing that since about 2009…
I also need to address this again.
Especially when printing with our new Fuse, where we directly print at least half a build chamber with different parts, saving individual stl files is sometimes very time-consuming.
We sometimes have assemblies with up to 20 individual parts that we now have to export one by one so that we can import them preform.
Meanwhile, I can save and open everything in a 3mf file for our FDM printers. It’s also easier this way to organise the design versions.
The support of 3mf files can’t come fast enough for us here.
I appreciate you flagging this request for us. I’ve gone ahead and submitted another feature request to help get more eyes on this topic. I can certainly see the value in being able to import multiple parts at once without using individual STL files, especially with the Fuse.
